Re: Advice for first timers

Don't bring anything in glass, decant your hard stuff into 'plastic' or a stainless steel thermos...they will take your bottle of Southern Comfort and stick it under the search table! Also I saw mirrors there once

Re: Next Announcement

BTW- the New Blood Stage has excellent bands on- last year Blind Divide were one of the best bands of the whole time. Those bands practice their guts out to make their mark. The Sophie stage and the New Blood is where I spend most of my time, you can hear the main stage as you cross over the field. ...

Re: Next Announcement

The capacity of Download is 110,000 this year and they are charging £243 for 3 days camping +£5.50 postage. Bloodstock maximum attendance has been 18,000. I went to Sonsiphere when it was 60,000 people - it reminded me of some post-apocalyptic refugee camp. You have to be off your face all the time ...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

Freedom of Movement isn't as unrestricted as the right-wing media suggest (or at least, it doesn't have to be): https://ukandeu.ac.uk/we-can-control-eu-migration-we-just-havent-done-it/ There is one section (article 8) of the EU Human Rights Law signed away by Brown in the Lisbon Treaty that gives ...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

I have bought merch at gigs from USA bands in the past few years and the price is no different from European bands or UK bands. But if you buy merch (or anything) directly from the USA then the tax is high due to the EU surcharge. Also, I bought something from Nuclear Blast in Germany and because th...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

As long as metal bands are freely able to get into the UK to play gigs and festivals then I have no problem with brexit. PS I have a brexit 1 to 2 times a day. ;) (Metal bands from the UK have been moving freely into non-EU countries for years without visas.) There could be a problem if an individu...

The Underworld was heaving - I went to a smaller venue a couple of weeks before and saw Abhorrent Decimation and Prostitute Disfigurement and they were better. Me and my friend agreed they were all sloppy. BloodThread at the Blackheart last week were excellent too and they were openers
